Bottling code of 14045B6 which translates to 02/14/14

Appearance - Pours near black with cola brown edging and a tan colored 2 finger head. Good retention, resulting in a thin layer of suds across the top. Small spots of lace cling tight, sporadically dispersed around the glass.

Smell - Prominent milk chocolate aroma with hints of roast in the distance.

Taste - Hmmm, much lighter than the nose would have one believe. Watered down chocolate notes and hints of stale coffee. More watered down flavor in the finish that comes through with a light earthy bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with low amounts of carbonation.

Overall - This stout has a promising aroma, but that's about it. The taste is a bland mess. Maybe 10 months of shelf life has killed what might be an otherwise great stout, but I'm not getting much of what might have been. Candidate for a re-review, but to be blunt my expectations with a fresher bottle isn't very high.

Chocolate malt flavor coming through, but expecting more roasted for a stout.
